This exhibition was curated by Dr Liam Devlin, the exhibition explored the photograph’s potential to prompt debate, not necessarily to address ‘how things are’ but to ask ‘what is possible’. It looks at how photographs both act as a document (of events or moments) and as an artistic/aesthetic image. It includes several photographers and the exhibition addresses themes including migration and the body.
Unfortunately I wasn’t able to make the opening of the exhibition because of work commitments. But lucky enough we was able to go down in uni time with the curater Liam and also Richard who’s work is featured in the exhibition. I loved all the work shown by the different photographers/ artists. It was nice being able to hear Richard talk about his own work and the process he went through to get the pictures on the wall. Over the upcoming months while the exhibition is running there is a number of debates / discussions involving the artists.
